"A phantom fish, half beaten to death, wriggled in my stomach."

Elizabeth McKenna Quotes

"She never imagined that at twenty years old shed already be a widow in black. On the bright side, she was no longer married to Dario, but her future still looked grim."

Margaret Heffernan Quotes

"The sooner we associate long hours and multitasking with incompetence and carelessness the better. The next time you hear boasts of executives pulling an all-nighter or holding conference calls in their cars, be sure to offer your condolences; its grim being stuck in sweatshops run by managers too ignorant to understand productivity and risk. Working people like this is as smart as running your factory without maintenance. In manufacturing and engineering businesses, everyone learns that the top priority is asset integrity: protecting the machinery on which the business depends. In knowledge-based economies, that machinery is the mind."

Kamal Ravikant Quotes

"Fighting fear doesnt work.  It just drags us in closer.  One has to focus on what is real.  On the truth.  When in darkness, dont fight it.  You cant win.  Just find the nearest switch, turn on the light."

Tony Conrad Quotes

"But picketing - picketing for or against something, and handing out literature - these are conspicuously formal actions. They have to be understood as indirect communication."

Linwood Barclay Quotes

"My biggest complaint about drivers out in the country has tended to be that theyre not in a great hurry to get where theyre going. This is particularly true of old men wearing hats. If you get behind an old guy wearing a hat on a winding road, you might as well just phone ahead on your cell and tell your friends youre going to be late."

Paul Tillich Quotes

"And so we use them for a kind of pleasure which can be called "fun." But it is not the creative kind of fun often connected with play; it is, rather, a shallow, distracting, greedy way of "having fun." And it is not by chance that it is that type of fun which can easily be commercialized, for it is dependent on calculable reactions, without passion, without risk, without love. Of all the dangers that threaten our civilization, this is one of the most dangerous ones: the escape from ones emptiness through a "fun" which makes joy impossible."

Hunter S Thompson Quotes

"Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy shit… what a ride!"

Quotes About Forster

"So he was queer, E.M. Forster. It wasnt his middle name (that would be Morgan), but it was his orientation, his romping pleasure, his half-secret, his romantic passion. In the long-suppressed novel Maurice the title character blurts out his truth, Im an unspeakable of the Oscar Wilde sort. It must have felt that way when Forster came of sexual age in the last years of the 19th century: seriously risky and dangerously blurt-able. The public cry had caught Wilde, exposed and arrested him, broken him in prison. He was one face of anxiety to Forster; his mother was another. As long as she lived (and they lived together until she died, when he was 66), he couldnt let her know." - Author: Michael Levenson

Quotes About Scots The English

"When sonneteering Wordsworth re-creates the landing of Mary Queen of Scots at the mouth of the Derwent -Dear to the Loves, and to the Graces vowed,The Queen drew back the wimple that she wore- he unveils nothing less than a canvas by Rubens, baroque master of baroque masters; this is the landing of a TRAGIC Marie de Medicis.Yet so receptive was the English ear to sheep-Wordsworths perverse Enough of Art that it is not any of these works of supreme art, these master-sonnets of English literature, that are sold as picture postcards, with the text in lieu of the view, in the Lake District! it is those eternally, infernally sprightly Daffodils." - Author: Brigid Brophy

Quotes About Working In Ems

"His own deism allowed for a God who, having made the world, having made the world, did not participate in the working out of its ends, whose management of human destiny only inherited in his allowing the patterns and values established by His will to work themselves out in human affairs. Lincolns response to his own question is to change his tone and focus." - Author: Fred Kaplan
